I hope this email finds you well. This message contains some very important information about locker clean-out and the return of WMS materials to school including textbooks, library books and laptops. Please read the attachment carefully. There are several scenarios for pick-up, and we need families to adhere to the instructions for organizational purposes and to protect the safety of all of those involved. If you have any questions, please email your grade level administrator. You will also be able to pick-up any medicines or medical items from the nurse on the listed dates.

8th Grade Families-
I attached some information from Woodstock High School. Contacts for sports and clubs are listed. Even though our summer schedule is still undecided, it’s a great idea to reach out to the high school and see what you can be working on over the summer. Most athletic programs will have summer workouts for you, and many clubs and activities have summer plans as well. Take it from a former head coach and Athletic Director, you need to get involved now. If you wait until August, you will be 2 months behind.

Please reach out to your teachers and make sure your student(s) are current with assignments. We want to do everything we can to help them be successful as we finish out the semester.
